Lemon Orzo Soup


This soup has light refreshing lemony broth with orzo pasta and little bit of onions and garlic. The garlic and lemon gives the soup a fantastic flavor. This soup is very comforting if you are feeling little under the weather. This soup is perfect for spring and summer. I love this soup because it can be prepped in a jiffy and very delicious. This soup is very low calorie and quite filling. I had seen most of the recipes with chicken in it, but since I don’t eat meat, I tweaked it to make it vegetarian and low sodium. I hope you try and love this soup as much as I do!


1/3 cup of orzo

3-4 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)

1/2 onion finely chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

3 cups of water

1/2 lemon juice and zest

1 tsp black pepper powder

salt to taste


In a medium pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add finely chopped garlic and onions and sauté until translucent. Keep stirring and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add water and let it come to a boil. Add orzo and salt-pepper. Add lemon juice and zest while orzo is cooking. Cook until orzo is cooked well, make sure not to over cook it. If soup becomes thick while orzo is cooking, add more water. Adjust salt-pepper per taste. Serve hot!
